Then I made it a habit to go to a pumpkin patch every year, and so this year, I’m just all about Halloween too! I figured it was time to go all out on a Halloween cake. I made this delicious pumpkin layer cake, made…

You don’t need cake flour, all purpose is just fine, and you don’t even need butter for the cake! So, without further ado, I think it’s time for an updated carrot cake recipe. I’m talking…

    If you have no self control when it comes to pumpkin, or chocolate, or muffins, this recipe is for you. It’s a small batch recipe – it makes only 6 muffins! But trust me, it hits the spot!
